Crime numbers down? Come back to earth Home Secretary, Police Commissioners and Chief Constables.
Due to the unacceptable fall in police numbers, response teams are told not to respond to calls such as shoplifters unless violence is used? This type of offence would then not be listed as a crime.  How many more different types of crime has no response from the police and not included in your statistics.
Time to put your hands up and start to admit that government austerity cuts are sadly wrong.
